Honeywell Features Lyric Family of Connected Products at CES 2016

Honeywell logoHoneywell is sharing its latest ways to help consumers feel more comfortable and in control at CES 2016. With the ever-expanding Lyric family of connected products, and integrations such as Apple HomeKit, Samsung SmartThings, and IFTTT, Honeywell’s legacy of home comfort, control and security continues to grow across the globe. And with Honeywell Life Care Solutions products and services, being in the know about personal health is within reach, whether someone is at home or on the go.

Along with the HomeKit-compatible, second generation Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat, Honeywell’s growing platform includes the professionally installed Lyric Home Security System and accessories such as indoor/outdoor cameras, glass break sensors, and smoke detectors.

In addition at CES, Honeywell is showcasing the new Lyric Wi-Fi Water Leak and Freeze Detector, with the same aesthetics as the Lyric thermostat for a DIY installation or via a Honeywell-certified contractor. From getting the temperature just right, to letting you know when something in the home needs immediate attention, the Lyric product portfolio has you covered.

Similarly, Honeywell’s Life Care Solutions products and services are able to extend the reach of healthcare right into the home. At CES, Honeywell’s product line will demonstrate how consumers can take an active part in managing their own health comfortably and easily.

The home-based Seymour self-care solution helps guide consumers who prefer to manage their own care daily, but who have connected access to their providers when needed. Genesis Touch wireless remote patient monitor and LifeStream provider software enable daily monitoring, such as blood pressure and weight, as well as proactive intervention by healthcare professionals when problems are deteched.

New Honeywell Thermostat Takes On Nest

Nest has been the darling of the tech industry in recent months, with their innovative thermostat solution, but Honeywell, a long-established manufacturer in this market is taking them on with a new WiFi enabled thermostat of their own.  It brings along most of the features of the Nest, but in a slightly larger format.

The new model from Honeywell features the ability to program for seven days in advance, and you can do so from a computer, tablet or smartphone from anywhere in your home or around the world.  Free mobile apps are available for both Android and iOS, plus you can manage multiple thermostats from the same app, so you can control home and business or multiple zones in the same location.  The apps also allow you to view local weather conditions and forecasts and the thermostat can send you high and low temperature alerts via email or text.

At the moment, the Honeywell WiFi Enabled Programmable Thermostat seems to be exclusive to Home Depot (you can buy online from them as well) for $149.  It’s likely to appear in other locations as well, although nothing has yet been announced.  You can get more info from the WiFiThermostat.com.
